On Saturday, March 27, 2010, at 8:30PM, be a part of a global stand against climate change. Turn off your lights for an hour. Other ways to get involved are found here. Basically, aside from one’s own participation, information dissemination is encouraged.
From my own experience, I think it’s important to get people to act, not just know about Earth Hour. I have to admit, I hesitated for a moment before turning off the lights in our own house for last year’s Earth Hour. First, almost all of our neighbors had their lights on. Granted there were several with their lights out but I could not be sure if they were just not home yet. Wouldn’t we look weird? Second, I had to get everyone in the family to cooperate. And since we have senior citizens in our household, I worried that an accident might occur while we had to make do with candlelight.
For contest fanatics, they have a photo contest in store. Details are in the Philippine site. Prizes were not mentioned though.
